The comedy “Drinking Habits” is tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m. at Caribbean Community Theatre on St. Croix, with a matinee on Sunday at 4 p.m.
Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in “Drinking Habits,” a wacky farce by playwright Tom Smith. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent doors open, but reporters Paul and Sally are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
Michael Baker directs the cast of Wendy Keeler Adams, Denise Blanchette, Kyle Halvorson, Paul Knipler, Diana Prince, Robin Seila, Rahul Sethia, and Marie Elise Witmer.
Tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members, and may be purchased at the CCT box office prior to each show, or in advance online at www.cct.vi. This play is not recommended for children under age 13.
